Iva in Zurich!!!!

Next stop is Zurich and this time lets hope Iva can at least reach the QF! She has a fair amount of points to defend (about 90 or so) after she qualified last year and beat ASV (who was then in top 15 I think) before losing in round 2. Lets hope she gets a good draw.

Anyway, Iva hasnt had great indoor season results since about 1997....I remember she used to kick ass in these, but obviously the competition is a lot tougher now...but still I dont understand why she doesnt perform as well as she used to in these events

Come on Iva, please pick up the pace and get some wins on the board

Iva has Dokic in the first round. It's a great chance to farm some points.
hehe When I woke up and remembered the draw is out, the first player that came to my mind that I wanted for Iva is Jelena.
After Jelena there's Sugiyama or a Q - beatable. And then ther's JenJen. Have they ever played?

I remember that iva and jen played in miami a couple of years ago when both players were in a slump and jen won in two tight sets.

GOOD LUCK IVA!

I'm going to post a "beat a top ranked player" cheering thread because Iva won a match after i posted the "win a match" cheering thread!

ugh, why do they all suck????????

I agree with you for 1st and 2nd round but are you sure that JenJen will be in QF? She has to pass 2nd round first (remember what happened this week). If Iva manages to beat JenJen in QF maybe she will manage to get into masters. Is that still possible (with the points I mean)?

Best of luck to my favourite players:
Jelena Kostanić, Karolina Šprem;
&
Justine, Lindsay and Daniela.

If she gets to the semis, and beats Dokic, Sugiyama and JenJen on the way she'd get to 1232 points in the race. Not good enough. Around 18th. If she followed up with a very good Linz result, then perhaps. It's theoretically posible, but very unlikely.

I've got to go one match at a time with Iva and not look too far forward at this point. Beating Jelena is certainly possible, but it won't be easy. Iva has beaten her before and that is always a good sign! I hope she can do it again and get to the Quarters here!!!! Good luck IVA!!!!

qualifying for the masters is really straight forward...
iva has to win her next 10 matches in a row and she is in, guarenteed.

ugh, why do they all suck????????

I guess I like to quote you Master Lu.

Well 18 is good since Hingis won't play masters for sure and you can always count that one other will drop (either one of the Williams sisters or maybe Monica). But first Iva has to beat Jelena! BTW. Correct me if I'm wrong but last year even 19th or 20th played at masters!

Best of luck to my favourite players:
Jelena Kostanić, Karolina Šprem;
&
Justine, Lindsay and Daniela.

well, the qualifiers have been placed and a bad draw became just a bit worse

If Iva beats Jelena, she will face the winner of Sugiyama and Stevenson (who qualified).
This is pretty bad because Ai will lose to Alexandra and Iva won't get as many bonus points for beating Alexandra as she would for Ai. I think I'm getting a bit ahead of myself. BTW, is the schedule of play out for tomorrow?

ugh, why do they all suck????????

hehe Well, I made a slight mistake. I didn't count Filderschtad points, so it'd be around 1300 points. Maleeva lost and is staying at 14something. Smashnova won, though. Dementieva is at 17 with 13-something, so it is possible. Not sure why would the Wx2 withdraw, though.

Anyway, go Iva!

Because Jelena is 6th, and was 9th last week, not 5th. Because she's in a terrible slump, or has burned out cause of all the tourneys she played. And finally, because Iva beat her while Jelena was playing much better then now, and Iva was nowhere on the comeback radar.
